Airflow: Connect to Teradata using JDBC

Getting these 3 muppets to communicate was a bit of challenge. It’s been well over a year since I did a proof-of-concept for getting airflow up and running in docker. I knew nothing back then about docker and airflow but eventually it all ran well. At the time, I leveraged off an existing airflow Dockerfile, which I came across in github.

I didn’t get a chance at the time to get the environment working with the Teradata JDBC driver but some things are better late than never. This post describes my recent experiment to get it (mostly) working.
